Teenager smiles in selfie with best friend hours before strangling her with her belt:

THIS is the selfie that police used to convict a woman of killing her best friend, because of one small detail.

POLICE used a selfie to help convict a killer who strangled her best friend — because the photo shows the belt she used to throttle her.

Cheyenne Rose Antoine, 21, was this week jailed for seven years after 18-year-old Brittney Gargol’s body was found dumped at the side of a road in Saskatchewan, Canada, reports The Sun.

Police say a picture of the pair posted hours before the teenager’s death became a key piece of evidence after it showed Antoine wearing a belt police believed to be the murder weapon, according to CBC News.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘It becomes worse after it gets dark’: Inside the Melbourne suburb terrorised by African youth gangs – where residents dread the day police leave

EXCLUSIVE: ‘It becomes worse after it gets dark’: Inside the Melbourne suburb terrorised by African youth gangs – where residents dread the day police leave:

  • Tarneit, about 25km west of Melbourne, has been under siege by African teens
  • The local Ecoville Community Park has been trashed and become a no-go zone
  • Families say they are scared of gangs of youths drinking and taking over streets
  • Police have increased their presence with regular high-visibility patrols
  • Parents are concerned the youths will return when the police presence drops 

Fearful residents have described what it is like to live in a Melbourne suburb plagued by gangs of African youths blamed for destroying a community centre and running amok.

Tarneit, about 25 kilometres west of Melbourne, is named after the local indigenous Wathaurong word for white.

First used for agricultural grazing in the 1830s, large-scale subdivision began only in the 1990s.

Families such as the Bukas, who left the Democratic Republic of Congo in central Africa for a better life in Australia, have instead been besieged by youth gangs from their home continent’s north.
